So this is Christmas

Tis the season to feast with family and friends. Local identities share what they’ll bring to the table

My greatgrandmother’s pudding. It’s a handwritten recipe that was passed down to my grandmother, then mum and now me. I love that there are little personal notes, and how she called it “puds”.

“It’s amazing how nostalgic food can be – the smell and taste are so familiar.”

Murwillumbah entices with quirky shops,
art and great coffee

The captivating little town of Murwillumbah is an easy 1½-hour drive from Brisbane. If the diverse range of shops and busy cafes is any barometer, the town is thriving. But if you want to visit them, you’ll need to go mid-week or stay overnight on a Friday.

“We were drawn to the town on a sunny Saturday morning to walk around South Murwillumbah, it’s a five-minute walk from the centre of town but is developing its own distinct avant-garde culture.”
